Misleading staffing agency

So I enrolled in rush personnel, a staffing agency, yesterday they told me they found me an interview for a job, the job was already sent my resume so they knew what to expect. I had to bike ten miles there in 100+ degrees, just to be told they don't have any positions open... Needless to say I'm pissed. It's been nine MONTHS and this was the first place to even offer an interview, and I didn't get N interview anyways, walked in, told to leave…

Should I ask for a raise?

I hope this doesn't seem insensitive because I know most of you are searching for work. Believe me, I was in your shoes not so long ago and I remember the agony and heartache but I need opinions. I can't post to Facebook because I broke my own rules about not friending people at work. So...

Why don't recruiters call you back

I spoke with a few recruiters about positions and now I'm trying to follow up and they don't call back.
One I'm trying to get my assessment test results... nothing, no response.
What can I do to get them to contact me?

Thank you!

The question is are these recruiters from the company or head hunters?

Confused about Temp Work

Many years ago I did temp work. I went into temporary service and was tested. Then the Service Representative would call me and send me on an assignment. These would last from one day to six months or more Now when I look at sites for temp services they list jobs and invite me to apply for them. Do I have to apply for each job, even if it is for a day or a couple weeks? I'm retired I am not looking for a temp to perm job. Temp to Perm jobs…

Yeah. I retired three years ago at 60 to deal with family issues. Those issues have been resolved. Fortunately, I have a solid…

I had a Temp jobOut East for Alan Schneider Assocs and drove all the way to Montauk. I love to drive.

I enjoyed Temp jobs because you get to see the people you will be working with, some people are real nice and some you want to stay away from. But mostly everyone is real nice. You might want to take temp jobs once in awhile to show the Mgrs you appreciate them calling you to work for them.

I had a temp job that I LOVED and we actually have someone on our team at Jobcase that was hired as a temp and now is hired full…

Losing hope

I have been job searching since January , I accepted a low paying job along the way but was recently let go from that position. I have been on at least 30 interviews and at least 50 phone interview with no success. Is people that biased and closed minded that they are only choosing people like them. I have great experience in HR , Administration, and Customer Service. This process is draining all the joy , hope and life out of me. It shouldn't…

Will I ever aee the light at the end of the tunnel?

Similar to other posts I've seen recently here, I too was let go without much of an explanation and even less Justice. I was a contract employee for Kelly Services which is a headhunting company. I was on contract at General Electric as a financial account analyst. My background is in Hospital medical billing and coding as well as program management; accounting and finance. The requirements for this position were only a high-school diploma and…
